Day 10 rat embryos (8-12 somites) cultured in vitro were exposed to elevated temperatures (41-43 degrees C) for varying lengths of time. A 15-minute exposure to a temperature of 43 degrees C (109.4 degrees F) was sufficient to produce malformed embryos when observed on day 11. Longer exposures at this temperature produce higher incidences of malformed embryos and also more severely affected embryos. Temperatures of 42 degrees C (107.6 degrees F) or 41 degrees C (105.8 degrees F) also produced… CONTINUE READING
